The Frick Pittsburgh, the location of the Frick family's residence in Pennsylvania, have just opened a special display of artworks reuniting collections amassed by Henry Clay Frick and his daughter Helen Clay Frick. This has been possible due to the closure of The Frick Collection in New York, which is due to reopen in the autumn of 2024.

According to the blurb on the museum's website:

The Frick Pittsburgh partners with New York-based The Frick Collection for the first time to unite the collections of 19th-century industrialist Henry Clay Frick and his daughter, philanthropist Helen Clay Frick. Vermeer, Monet, Rembrandt: Forging the Frick Collections in Pittsburgh & New York explores the Fricks' shared passion for art collecting, how their iconic acquisitions shaped the museums they established, and how we define great art today.

Vermeer, Monet, Rembrandt features awe-inspiring masterworks, including works by Titian, Rembrandt, Monet, Degas, Whistler, El Greco, Ingres, and Vermeer—one of only 36 known works by the artist in the world. The exhibition marks a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see artworks from these two extraordinary collections alongside—and in some cases reunited with—one another.

The show will run until 14th July 2024.
